L. Ron Hubbard’s home in Phoenix is the birthplace of Scientology. And with L. Ron Hubbard’s birthday, March 13, on the horizon, Scientologists around the world look forward to celebrating the day. Because it is such a special day for Scientologists, it meant a lot to the local congregation that the Arizona Interfaith Movement recently honored Mr. Hubbard’s work in Phoenix. Naturally, this will make their celebration even more special.
L. Ron Hubbard’s Phoenix Home – Where he lived when he founded Scientology
A brilliant sunset browned Camelback Mountain overlooking the Phoenix home of Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard. And it created the perfect backdrop for this very special presentation. This is where the Reverend Larry Fultz, executive director of the Arizona Interfaith Movement, presented a plaque to the Church of Scientology of Phoenix.
Phoenix, Arizona, Interfaith Organization Presents Award
The plate reads: “Presented in commemoration of the 70th anniversary of L. Ron Hubbard’s arrival at his Camelback home where he founded the religion of Scientology. A profound philosopher, humanist and author, Mr. Hubbard lived by the Golden Rule and inspired countless others to strive to create a world of harmony, goodwill and peace, as evidenced by his writings.”
“The award is very special to us given the accomplishments of these 70 years,” said Reverend Ginny Leason, public affairs director for the Church of Scientology of Phoenix and Arizona Interfaith board member. “We follow Mr. Hubbard’s principles of goodwill and peace and thank Arizona Interfaith for this plaque and their own application of the Golden Rule.”
L. Ron Hubbard’s Research on Mind, Spirit, and Life
It was here, at the foot of the mountain, that L. Ron Hubbard’s research led him to discover that:
Man is an immortal spiritual being.
His experience extends far beyond a single lifetime.
His abilities are limitless, even if they are not currently realized.
“Man can save his soul,” he wrote. “Like the fresh and bright dawn after a night of prison and thunder, man can taste this long-sought freedom.”
Birth of the Scientology religion
In the early 1950s, Scientologists traveled to Phoenix from all over America. And others came from abroad. They attended three conventions in Phoenix. And the most accomplished of them have completed seven advanced clinical courses. Here, Mr. Hubbard laid the foundations of Scientology. And it quickly became the youngest major religion in the world.
David Miscavige dedicates new Church of Scientology
the Church of Scientology Phoenix has served a growing congregation since 1974 and moved to its expansive new headquarters at the southeast corner of 44th Street and Indianola Avenue in 2012. It was then that Scientology ecclesiastical leader Mr. David Miscavige dedicated the church.
Message from David Miscavige to those present at the inauguration
“You are about to start a new chapter in your story,” he said. “And it all begins with an undying commitment to maintaining that rare spirit of skill, compassion and benevolence with which L. Ron Hubbard originally founded Scientology. For only thus will we achieve the goals of Scientology. And so this world without war; a world of which we can be proud, where the able can prosper, where honest people have rights and all are free to soar to greater heights. And, yes, that is our responsibility as Scientologists. And, yes, it’s the one we proudly embrace.
L Ron Hubbard’s Phoenix Home Has Been Completely Restored
